HEY AMERICA!!! - WATCH YOUR OWN D@*$ KIDS!!! (so the government can use my tax money to drop bombs on people...). However, if your golf game is more important than your kids...let's see if the government can keep them safe. PAGE ONE PAGE TWO Strong work. I already wrote this article for free.

Those crazy guys at Autosound 2000 Ranch have one hell of an inferiority complex (and potentially the biggest subwoofer ever built). A couple of facts about it...from Clark - Navone with 60 Inch Woofer The cone moves 6 inches peak to peak under full-tilt output. The actual cone diameter is 54 inches, with the 3 inch wide surround on the outside of that. The radiating surface area is 2,290 square inches. That yields a one way displacement of 6,871 cubic inches. That is equivalent to the displacement of 161 ten inch woofers that move 1.5 inches peak to peak. The motor is capable of producing 6,000 pounds of linear force, which is necessary when considering the very large surface area and displacement volume required to produce high SPL levels. The woofer was designed with the capability to produce SPL levels of 188 dB, which are entirely possible, given an appropriately built vehicle. It is simply a matter of displacement and containment. HUH...WHAT WAS THAT YOU SAID!?! FFF
One foot on the brake and one on the gas, hey! Well, there's too much traffic, I can't pass, no! - S. Hagar These guys create a rolling roadblock on an Atlanta Freeway by obeying the speed limit. People start losing their cool mighty quickly & they've got the video to prove it. WORK WARNING - There are some dirty words used in the video...how naughty!!! Buckle up! It's the law! fff

Officially the Type 997, the 911 Turbo now puts out 480 hp @ 6000 rpm, a 60 hp improvement on the last version. Torque goes up, too, to a pavement-peeling 457 foot-pounds. With the six-speed manual transmission, the 911 Turbo rockets to 62 mph in just over 3.9 seconds. The 911 Turbo with the optionally available Tiptronic S automatic transmission puts in an even more impressive performance. An optimized setup gives the vehicle the wherewithal to power from zero to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds. The vehicle’s flexibility can be enhanced even further with the optional “Sport Chrono Package Turbo”, available for the first time. Here the driver selects the “sports button” adjacent to the gear lever to activate a short-time “overboost” at full throttle. To transfer the available power to the road, the new generation of the 911 Turbo features a redesigned all-wheel drive with an electronically controlled multi-disc clutch. Porsche Traction Management (PTM) ensures variable power distribution to the two driven axles. Depending on the driving conditions, the all-wheel electronics system constantly determine the optimal torque distribution to ensure the best-possible drive. The new 911 Turbo’s driving performance is duly tempered by its brake system, which comprises ...
Record labels continue to sucker punch music consumers. Newest copy protected CDs: no MP3s, no Macs, some PCs, some CD/DVD players, some car stereos
I am a consumer of music. Always have been. But record labels don't want my money anymore. I bought music with the first greenbacks that ever touched my little blue velcro wallet. My first album...Quiet Riot - Metal Health (hell yeah). My second...Cyndi Lauper - She's So Unusual (cause girls just wanna have fun & it's important for boys to understand that at a very young age!) . My collection includes vinyl, tapes, CDs, DVDs, with most of it stored to MP3s for easy access & portability. Over the years, I've spent tens of thousands of dollars on music: buying the latest releases, amassing a collection of classic albums , attending hundreds of concerts, buying posters (I still love you Lita Ford if you're out there), concert DVDs, limited vinyl releases, tons of logo-sporting black t-shirts/hats (to my wife's dismay); as well as the home, auto, and personal audio gear needed to enjoy it all (and of course, upgrading with every format change). A terrible habit, I tend to overlook because of my torrid love affair with music. But the latest releases from Sony BMG have incorporated some of the most poorly executed copy protection ever seen . Oh don't worry...it's just ...
